Today is the opening reception of 3 very awesome solo shows at Stranger Factory out in Albuquerque, NM, with new works by Bob Dob, Tim Lee, and my extra favorite Valency Genis, whose 'Fauna' works are simply adorable! Her new series will feature her strange sculpted taxidermy creatures in the context of the natural world, as seen with Lord Ravenshaw above. This odd little fellow and grimacing mushrooms make for a lovely story scene... you can literally formulate what brought about this moment in time that she froze for us. Love it!!
